Republicans Rally For Last-Ditch Attempt At Repealing ObamaCare

By

Senate Republicans are considering a final attempt at passing a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act after falling one vote short in July. Republicans technically have until Sept. 30 before they lose the ability to pass a bill with just 50 votes plus Vice President Mike Pence. Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) introduced a bill that would effectively replace much of ObamaCare with state block grants and phase out Medicaid expansion. “Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he is a ‘no,’ panning the bill as ‘ObamaCare Lite,'” Politico writes. “And Republicans believe [Maine Republican Sen. Susan] Collins also won’t vote for it, though she has not made a final decision. Graham-Cassidy backers can’t afford to lose another vote.”
